I had a nice long talk with one of the farmers there several days ago. He apologized but said that the geese prefer the sod over the winter wheat, and that they make holes in the sod and deposit weed seeds. That’s the rationale for dispersing the Snow Geese.
For those interested, one place that they went to was a small double pond area with a very large field at 125 Sharon Station Road. That’s where several found the Ross’s Goose.
